3 Tips To Help Extend Your Roof’s Life and Reduce Long-term Costs.
Without proper maintenance, your commercial roof will deteriorate, leading to leaks, mold, ponding water, and possibly even the need for a total replacement. The longer any roof damage goes unaddressed, the further it can spread creating larger expenses down the road. With a little planning you can save yourself big expense in the long-run.
1- CLEAN YOUR ROOF
Your roof accumulates leaves, dirt, and other debris that will hold moisture, leading to mold or deteriorated membrane. This can happen near the drains, in the gutters, or on flat sections. With all this buildup, water cannot drain properly, so you are more prone to leaking or flooding.
2- GET A ROOF INSPECTION
A commercial roof should be inspected bi-annually. A complete inspection should include a evaluation of the roof itself, the gutter system, the interior of the building, and any walls that may provide structural integrity. A professional inspection should come complete with a comprehensive inspection report outlining the status of key areas of potential concern.
3 -SCHEDULE PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
Regularly scheduled preventative maintenance can be the best way to identify any roofing issues or potential roofing issues before they become major expenses. Consider scheduling an annual, bi-annual, or quarterly maintenance schedule so no issues or unexpected expenses arise. A complete preventative commercial roof maintenance schedule should include:
- Inspect and clean drains, overflow, gutters, grates, and scuppers
- Remove accumulated debris
- Inspect penetrations, seams, and flashings
- Inspect entire roof area for damage
- Complete any repairs as needed
